Man turns Metro stations in personal driving range

This is one way to improve your alignment.

A British man is wanted by authorities for turning a pair of Metro stops into a personal driving range last week. Filmed by closed-circuit TV cameras, the man placed some golf balls on the platform at the South Hylton Metro station, before hitting them with some clubs from a golf bag he was carrying around with him, according to the U.K.-based Chronicle.

This was confused for a driving range.

Who knew train tracks could double as alignment sticks?

The man then hopped into a train car, went to another station and did the same thing before taking a bathroom break on a bike rack. All of this was done past 11 p.m., which probably explains a lot.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the English suburb.
